This Paper highlights the importance of addressing the demand that fosters trafficking for sexual exploitation, in particular the exploitation of the prostitution of others. In doing so, it puts a spotlight on the role of demand in encouraging exploitation and causing harm to victims; outlines the scope of the international obligations and commitments of States to discourage demand; analyses the ways in which States have responded to these obligations and commitments in their criminal justice and prevention practices; and offers recommendations on how to better incorporate demand into national efforts. The primary aim of the paper is to support and enhance the implementation of State-led responses to demand.

In the report, the FEMM committee points out that the EU has no direct powers to deal with sexual and reproductive health and rights (SRHR) in EU countries. In accordance with Article 168(7) of the Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union, it is the Member States' responsibility to define national health policies and organise and deliver health services and medical care. The Union complements the actions of its Member States. It encourages them to cooperate and can lend them support.

The FEMM committee report calls on EU countries to safeguard the right of all persons to make their own informed choices with regard to SRHR, and to ensure that every person has equal access to these services and rights. The report also voices concerns about the impact of the Covid‑19 pandemic on access to health services and sexual and reproductive rights.

Causes of undernutrition: poor diets, diseases and care practices Good nutrition goes beyond food security. Proper care practices, including breastfeeding and other recommended infant and young child feeding practices, hygienic environments, and access to health services are needed in addition to nutritious diets. Good nutrition is as much about ensuring an appropriate intake of nutrients as it is about ensuring that children are healthy enough to absorb those nutrients. During emergencies, disruptions to food, health, water and sanitation, and social protection systems make it more difficult for people to access nutritious diets and health services, and to practise protective behaviours such as breastfeeding to prevent malnutrition. In Somalia, just 5.1 percent of children aged 6–23 months consume a diet that is considered minimally acceptable in terms of diversity and meal frequency (DHS 2020). In the Central African Republic, this figure is 7.4 percent (SMART, 2019). And in Nigeria, just 27.2 percent of infants are exclusively breastfed until 6 months (NNHS 2018).
